There are just not enough photos

Bilian Zhang (American name, Olivia) is a Work and Travel participant from China, working in Harrisburg, PA. In her fifth blog post, she shares a day of her life in Pennsylvania’s capital.
I’ve been in the USA for about a month now. I try my best to experience and enjoy the life here in my free time. I’m just too busy seeing and feeling that I only take a few photos. When it comes to writing a blog, I realize that there are not enough photos to show how happy I feel being here!
I participate in the “Caitlin’s Smiles” Project. I decorate cards and bags for kids who are in the hospital. I hope they feel happy when they see my cards and it makes them smile all day.
We had an event with all of the international students here in Harrisburg. We had a big party and enjoyed the food, music, and activities. It was a really great night and everyone had fun!
In my free time, I often go out with my friends to go shopping or have fun doing something else. We are far away from home now, so we miss Chinese food a lot. We got to eat some Cantonese dim sum. They were so delicious and tasted like home!
I often take walks along the Susquehanna River after dinner. It is good for health and it is a good opportunity to see a beautiful sunset. The beauty in life exists in every simple thing.
